The requirements of ISO 16736:2006 govern the application of explicit algebraic equation sets to the calculation of specific characteristics of ceiling jet flows.
ISO 16736:2006 is an implementation of the general requirements provided in ISO/TR 13387-3 for the case of fire dynamics calculations involving sets of explicit algebraic equations.
ISO 16736:2006 is arranged in the form of a template, where specific information relevant to algebraic ceiling-jet-flow equations is provided to satisfy the following types of general requirements: description of physical phenomena addressed by the calculation method; documentation of the calculation procedure and its scientific basis; limitations of the calculation method; input parameters for the calculation method; domain of applicability of the calculation method.
Examples of sets of algebraic equations meeting all the requirements of ISO 16736:2006 are provided for each different type of ceiling jet flow, including those for quasi-steady state axisymmetric ceiling jet flows.
